President’s Day (US)
While originally intended to celebrate the birthday of the first US President, George Washington, the holiday has become a general celebration of all US Presidents (past and present).

With the passage of the Monday Holiday Law (1968), the federal celebration of George Washington’s birthday moved from its actual date, February 22nd, to the 3rd Monday of February. The celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birth (February 12th) while no longer observed as a federal holiday is also customarily celebrated on President’s Day.
